10-yr-old resists rape, murdered

New Delhi, Oct 28, 2012, DHNS:

Accused has criminal past

A 35-year-old man has been arrested for killing a 10-year-old girl  after she resisted his attempt to rape her at her house in Pul Prahladpur in south-east Delhi, police said on Sunday.

Police said the accused Gopal, 35, who hails from Bihar’s Katihar district, was earlier also arrested for rape and molestation.

According to Ajay Chaudhry, additional commissioner of police (south-east), action was taken after the minor girl’s body was found by her brother in a dustbin near Railway Colony in Pul Prahladpur late on Saturday.


“A case of murder was lodged over a complaint by her brother,” Chaudhry said. Police later found out that the girl’s neighbour, Gopal, was absconding.

“We traced Gopal’s movement and he was apprehended on Sunday morning at Tuglakabad railway station while he was trying to escape,” Chaudhry added. Gopal told police that he had killed the girl. He said he went to the girl’s house after consuming alcohol on Saturday evening.

“Finding her alone, he tried to misbehave with her. She objected to it and told him that she would inform her brother,” Chaudhry said.

Furious over this, Gopal attacked her with a wooden bread-roller. He then took her to a nearby place and crushed her head with a stone.

“He was also caught having unnatural sex with a goat. He managed to escape after paying penalty to the village panchayat,” Chaudhry added.
